One of the most popular horror films of the year is coming to Netflix just in time for Halloween.
A24’s Talk To Me film, which earned 94 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes following glowing reviews from critics, follows Mia (Sophie Wilde) – a young woman who becomes embroiled with the supernatural following a séance with an embalmed hand.
After she and a group of teens come into the possession of a mummified hand, they believe it supposedly connects them with spirits when a seance is performed. When connected to the hand for no longer than 90 seconds, users experience a drug-like high, leading to the teens taking turns to use it.
Directed by Danny and Michael Philippou in their feature directorial debut, Talk To Me also stars Alexandra Jensen as Jade, Joe Bird as Riley, Otis Dhanji as Daniel, Miranda Otto as Sue, Zoe Terakes as Hayley and Chris Alosio as Joss.
The film, which originally premiered at the Adelaide Film Festival in 2022 before arriving in cinemas earlier this year, will arrive on Netflix this week. You can stream the film from October 25.

Reviewing the film, NME wrote: “This is a horror film and many will watch because they want to be scared – or, at the very least, spooked – and maybe even repulsed by some grisly sights, regardless of solid acting and realistic characterisation. Pleasingly, there are some stomach-churning scenes and a smattering of jump scares.
“Hardcore horror fans should expect less of a full-on festival of bloody carnage and more a new-school chiller in line with the first two films by Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar) or Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us). Regardless: for a top-ranking summer fright from Down Under, don’t miss Talk To Me.”
